Specify warehouse at the request level

Folks,

I believe it would be a great idea to allow a WAREHOUSE ID to be specified at the REQUEST-level in Acumatica....especially if we are going to allow end-users to request inventory items.

What would work even better, and have seen in many other systems, would be to allow the WAREHOUSE to be specified at the HEADER LEVEL of the request (or even at the REQUISITION level), and have that warehouse default to any line item details, rather than the need to enter in one at a time.

This need came up for me on a recent implementation, where the end-users making the request want items to be received into certain warehouses, but have no choice to do so in the system.....only through notes.

Basically when purchasing makes the Requisition, the line item will go to the item's default warehouse, which might not be one in the same with the intended warehouse of the REQUESTOR?

    We have multiple pickup warehouses. Special order items will ship directly to the pickup warehouse, and our distribution warehouse will transfer to the pickup warehouse.

    So, every line of every order has to get the warehouse adjusted. This is where mistakes happen.
